For several years now I have regularly recorded ‘Thoughts‘ for Bolton FM. I first started when I was a Chaplain at the University of Bolton and continued when I was Chaplain and Church Leader at Oasis Academy at Media City.
The theme for Radio 2 this week is ‘Loneliness’ – which is known as the 21st century killer. One hope I have in sharing these thoughts is to break into that loneliness and encourage people. If it also has the effect of making just one person consider those around them who might be experiencing loneliness and try to impact that and bring some joy that is a wonderful consequence.
I deliver mindfulness workshops through my consultancy and part of their purpose is to get people out of ‘autopilot’ and to notice what is going on around and within them.
